Veggie Spaghetti

Last night’s dinner was quick and easy to whip up in a hurry. We had my little sister, Eliza, over and she helped me keep tabs on what ingredients we were using and how we made this delicious meal. Here’s a photo of Eliza when we went to the Riverbanks Zoo the other week!

Back to dinner…Onions, mushrooms and spinach were the only vegetables I had left in my refrigerator, so feel free to add another others that you have and pack it full of veggies!
